anniversary reflection


Helo! Im very busy today. Need to go in 10 mins for a meeting at MEPZ but i just cant help but share about the day that was :)

We just turned 4 as husband and wife! and we both think the same: time flies fast! it seemed like yesterday when i walked down the aisle hehehe

But now, four years and a lot of pounds after (ehehe) we have rujim na. so many blessings. Simple dreams. A handful of trials surpassed. I cant wait for our next anniversary!

Well .. it started sweet and simple. We gave each other inexpensive but loving gifts. We planned to have a casual wifi date at IT park but we ended having tea, facials and foot massage! an even better plan for we both realized surfing on a date is absurd... to0 anti-social. anti-emote2. anti-quality time for each other. hehe

We both liked the thought that Uji was with his 3 titas (Mae, Yang and Bing) while we were out. we both laughed overhearing the spa attendant getting pissed by a caller: "Nangutana if ang 500 daw na massage naa nay 'extra service' (LOL)"

In the midst of our date, i received a bad news: our ninong Art (principal sponsor in our wedding exactlly 4 yrs back) passed away. The news shocked me. Picture of him and ninang marlyn flashed my mind. They were so sweet towards each other. Nice couple. Good family. Beautiful kids. I suddenly realized: Could i accept it if it happened to me? I was so shocked and pained for ninang marlene.

As we walked back to the car, i whispered a prayer. that God give us strength to face such unexpected painful events . Grace to always live each day as if it's our last. Faith to say YES to things we wish would never happen --- obedience to His will.

Typing these words frighten me somehow. But i just surrender to Him. He is the reason why I have life. He knows what's best for His children. I was born to know Him, love HIm, serve Him... so I can eventually be with Him with my loved ones... He is ENOUGH.

SMILE. GOD LOVES YOU and ME =)

Amen to that... It is so funny that the coffeeshops that are selling the most expensive coffee and tea in the world are charging us wifi connection at a whooping P100 to P140 per hour! Whoa! One could think, it is significantly economical and convenient to just go to a nearby internet cafe and surf. At least, one will be spared from carrying a heavy laptop. hehehe. But anyway, the best decision that we had as a couple during our special day was the one when we decided to go to the massage and spa parlor to pamper ourselves instead. :) At least the facial scrub and foot massage cost practically the same as getting our laptop hooked to this "wifi-zone" coffee shops. Hehehe. By the way, next time, let us have full body massage and full body scrub. :) Happy anniversary, Baby... - Benjo
